DARTH VADER and hip63's groovy galaxy productions proudly presents:
ETW Mod of the Year!
What is DarthMod Ultimate Commander Edition?
DarthMod Ultimate Commander is nearly a complete overhaul of Empire: Total War based on Darth Vader's excellent DarthMod Empire Commander Edition Mod.
While DarthMod focuses on the most important aspect of the game, the Battle AI and Campaign AI, DarthMod Ultimate Commander Edition focuses on improving or enhancing many of the game's other elements. The DMUC brings new options to DarthMod via the DMUC Launcher that allows the player to quickly tune the DMUC to the game experience they want. Much of the DMUC focuses on the audio and visual elements of game play with a great many of original units retextured with historically correct uniforms and equipment changes plus selectable Drum & Fife music, Sound Effects and Menu Music. Other selectable options include Blood and Smoke, Grenades, No Forts, Artillery Mods and more!
It is pointless to resist...

The DarthMod Ultimate Commander is fully modfoldered so it can sit alongside vanilla and other mods without overwriting the vanilla files.
DMUC Ultimate Campaigns use a DMUC_Core.pack file which is a modified version DarthMod Lite. An unmodified DarthModLite.pack file is still used for all other modes of play and for troubleshooting support.
DMUC Launcher updated with new "Deactivate DMUC Files" Option. When selected, this will move all DMUC pack files out of the data folder. This is useful for troubleshooting and when installing or play other large mods. All menu options are disabled when mod is deactivated.

Useful information about DMUC 7.0 Version
The launcher of DMUC 7.0 is the same with DMUC 6,2 but some options have been disabled
The DMUC 7.0 includes all the new gameplay enhancements as an upgrade of version 6.2. However, for compatibility reasons the following do not work:
- The multiple DMUC Core options are all the same. Whatever you choose in the options has no effect.
- The No Smoke option is not available.
- The multiplayer does not work as intended. Please do not use (It never did work as indented and we have verified it). If you want to play Multiplayer with your friends then use ONLY the DM version.
- The no forts mod is removed completely. Whatever you choose in the options has no effect.
- The no trails mod is disabled because it corrupted the game (really cunning bug).
- The WarPath Indians is disabled (It caused bugs). Whatever you choose in the options has no effect.
We Hope You Enjoy the Mod!
